Sarah Boland

Sarah was born in a small town in Germany. After graduating from college, she moved to Scotland, where she completed her master's degree. As part of her degree, she spent a year living and studying in Spain.

Due to her love of studying and a long interest in Mathematics, she completed an honour's degree in Mathematics at the Open University, while also studying towards a distance learning degree in psychology.

Using her academic knowledge and success, Sarah started teaching as a private tutor. As she was very successful and received well by her students, she decided to grow her business and set up her own language and tutoring school. Eureka now has a team of tutors, a tutoring centre in Portsmouth as well as an online school teaching many homeschooled students.

She has a number of years’ experience working as a statistician/engineer within the finance and banking industry where she was responsible for a number of multi-million projects in different sectors.

Native in French and Arabic, Thorya has been enjoying tutoring French, Arabic and mathematics privately for 5 years. She enjoys meeting new people and working in the community. What she enjoys the most is seeing people taking up a new language whether for work or as a hobby and slowly getting to master it.

Ann Boland

She subsequently taught English to young children in Germany where she lived for 13 years until returning to the UK and teaching English to foreign students in Wales, preparing for GCSE exams. She now lives in England teaching a variety of online classes teaching English and history with Eureka.

Placi Linares

Placi is native Spanish speaker from Cordoba. He grew up knowing teaching as well as helping others was, what he was good at so it was no surprise when he became a qualified teacher specialised in primary age, back in 2011. Shortly after getting a job as a teacher he came across a student with autism and his world turned upside down. Within 5 month he moved to Basingstoke to learn more about teaching kids in SEN schools.

Alongside teaching children with special needs he started teaching Spanish and he hasn't look back since. He combined his passion teaching SEN with teaching Spanish. Placi is now responsible for the planning and development of several Spanish groups with around 7 students each and feels like there's more people out there he is willing and commited to help. People just like you.

Guy Rogers

Guy was born in Portsmouth and has lived in the surrounding area all his life.  His love for science started in school and continued through to university where he studied astrophysics at the Russell Group's University of Southampton.  While at university, he began to tutor privately and soon realised he had a passion for helping others to learn.

Once graduated, he was able to use this passion to teach science at key stage 3 and 4 both in school and through continued private tutoring. Now, he still enjoys spending time helping students succeed through private tutoring and teaching online classes at the school.
